I'm doing well in terms of exercising. I am now on week 5 of Insanity. Have been doing this program for the past month every morning. I don't think I have lost weight... but inches yes. I'm still at 190s. As much as I would want to see it go down to 180s, I'm not letting it affect my happiness.
Food intake was not so good... To burn fat, exercising is just 10% while eating is 90%. I really have to control what I eat. I usually am so good when at the office, but when night time comes... I overdose myself with sweets and double/triple servings of food. I won't whine and beat myself up. I have reached a point where I accept my strengths and weaknesses. I'm going to learn and move forward. (I need more time to meditate on what the heck I am doing... sabotaging myself)
So health/fitness wise, I am doing OK. I sleep at 9 or 10pm, wake up at 5 or 6am. This has been my routine ever since I started Insanity. Yes this is optimal... I work from 8-5 on weekdays, I attend seminars/classes and do meet ups on my weekends.
I'm investing on my personal growth; I'm working on being a financial planner/advisor... And my biggest challenge right now is making the time to study/read the materials provided, do a case study, prepare a presentation and schedule a defense. All in one month!
How do I juggle all of this... something will have to give sooner or later... I wouldn't want to let go of my exercise and sleep, but I need to study... Of all my priorities, the thing to let go is my social life... or maybe I am not as focused as I want to be... There are times when I feel like I am just making excuses... I truly am wishing that there is more than 24 hours in a day.
